This 2019 uncirculated $1 coin commemorates the fateful mutiny that led to the settlement of a unique community on Norfolk Island, and to the appointment of the infamous Captain Bligh as Governor of New South Wales.

On 27 April 1789, tensions aboard HMS Bounty boiled over. As the ship left Tahiti for Britain – with its sailors reluctant to leave the lush island – Captain William Bligh’s infamous ill temper started to provoke his crew to rebellion.

On 28 April, the Bounty’s crew mutinied. Bligh and eighteen sailors were forced into an overloaded launch and set adrift on the ocean. Remarkably, most survived to return to Britain and be hailed as heroes.

In the meantime a small group of the mutineers, led by Fletcher Christian, made their way to settle Pitcairn Island. Many years later the colony that they founded moved to Norfolk Island, where their descendants still live today, proud of their unique culture and language.

Captain Bligh was eventually appointed Governor of New South Wales – where his explosive temper once again incited rebellion.
